This needs no elaboration:
'We are extremely disappointed with the White House letter. While we remain willing to negotiate with the White House, they adhere to their unacceptable all-or-nothing position, and now will not even seek to properly justify their privilege claims. Contrary what the White House may believe, it is the Congress and the Courts that will decide whether an invocation of Executive Privilege is valid, not the White House unilaterally.'
--Chairman Conyers Responding to White House Refusal to Justify Blanket Privilege Claims:
"As a longtime attorney at the U.S. Department of Justice, I can honestly say that I have never been as ashamed of the department and government that I serve as I am at this time.

The public record now plainly demonstrates that both the DOJ and the government as a whole have been thoroughly politicized in a manner that is inappropriate, unethical and indeed unlawful.
The unconscionable commutation of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby's sentence, the misuse of warrantless investigative powers under the Patriot Act and the deplorable treatment of U.S. attorneys all point to an unmistakable pattern of abuse."
--John S. Koppel , who has been a civil appellate attorney with the Department of Justice since 1981.

Totally off topic:
Why do little cubes of individually wrapped Laughing Cow cheese come with Fun Facts printed on the inside of the wrapper?

Oh, and this year 85% of us will eat Spam.

I can honestly say I have never had spam... at least to my knowledge, one never knows with spam. Though I have consumed Hormel products.

Speaking of spam...

How entirely appropriate that was!
Thank you for being so on point, Ashen.

P.S. That was HILARIOUS!!!!

And Spam is awful. Worse than awful. It's like eating salted, slimy rubber. From a can.

I like spam.

And if you live in Hawaii or visit, you are in the spam capitol of the world.

They serve spam everywhere - from the convenience stores to five-star restaurants.
